A Dark Horse

If we had any doubts about our younger son not being able to compete with his older brother in the creation of awkward moments, they were officially laid to rest. A male friend of mine was over eating dinner with us last night when our five year old son offered this interesting tidbit very audibly for all of us to ponder:

"I beat my penis!"

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a new winner, folks. And of course I exhibited my usual grace under pressure with my response of "most males do." Um, oops.

So, the younger brother has raised the bar, at least temporarily. It will only be a matter of time before one of them bests that one.


  1. most?

    someone is lying in that census.

  2. furious-
    Hee hee. Well, barring amputation, paralysis, or severe sexual disfunction we know that the ones who say they don't are big fat liars. ;-)

  3. That will be a hard one to beat.


  4. So, um, you've researched this topic?

  5. heart-
    Yes, it will be, but I'm sure that they'll find a way. ;-)

    Of course it's not exclusively first hand information. Don't forget that a majority of my friends were guys. It's simply amazing what they'll tell you if only you ask. ;-)

  6. That's funny ... most of my friends are women and they are surprizingly free with information too. I've heard some interesting observations on the "size matters"/"size doesn't matter" debate. :)

  7. Oooh, Heart in San Fran outpunned everyone. That was a good one.

    At least he didn't say "I eat my penis."

    Older brother could never measure up.

  8. I spat my beer. And I think that tells you all you need to know about my reaction.
